In the first signing off the season offseason, Seattle Reign FC announced Monday that Australian midfielder Elise Kellond-Knight will join the team for the 2019 season.

Kellond-Knight will join Seattle after finishing out her time with Hammarby in Sweden and then joining Melbourne City for the upcoming W-League season in Australia.

“I’m so happy to have finally come to an agreement with the NWSL to join Seattle Reign FC in the upcoming 2019 NWSL season,” said Kellond-Knight. “They are a class team who play a style of football that I can see myself enjoying.”

Kellond-Knight has 95 career international caps, and has appeared in two Women’s World Cups for the Matildas.

“We’re excited to have Elise on the team. We’ve been working a long time to find a way to bring her to the club,” said Seattle Reign FC head coach Vlatko Andonovski. “She’s a very talented player who will add another dimension to our midfield. We can’t wait to get started and see Elise on the pitch.”
